The thirteen ships of the Dealey class were the US Navy’s first post-World War II destroyer escorts as successors to the World War II destroyer escort classes. The design criteria for this first generation of post-World war II destroyer escorts included a low silhouette and low center of gravity, low cost and a smaller crew. Steam turbine machinery was retained with a single screw. When the final Dealey design emerged, its flush-deck profile combined influences of a World War II DE hull with aspects of the bow and superstructure of the, soon to come Forrest Sherman class.  Any service era or vessel configuration - We can build a model of them all - your pick.

We offer our Dealey Class Destroyer Escort Models in several popular size/scale offerings for easy ordering and selection.  However, if you would like your model made in a size other than those sizes listed, please contact us with your request. Custom orders are our specialty!

Our Destroyer Escort models are made-to-order, meaning that we do not stock any pre-made models.  Only when a customer tells us the size and/or scale desired do we build the model. Each model is exquisitely crafted by our master model builders and comes fully assembled with a solid hull - hand carved from kiln-dried mahogany.  Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resin and metals. Every model includes pedestals, a polished mahogany base board, and a name plate.  Options include keel block mounting, waterline models, ships seals and ribbons, and weathering paint schemes.

The model build time is generally 20 weeks from receipt of the order and deposit. The normal procedure is a 50% deposit with the commissioning, with the balance due prior to shipping.  Note that prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval – so you know exactly what your model will look like and allow for any necessary modifications. Once you have approved your model, we’ll collect the final balance and she will be shipped in a robust shipping crate and insured for your protection.

FREE SHIPPING in the USA - Note that our model prices include shipping and insurance within the USA.

Shipping costs outside the USA will depend on the model size ordered and shipping destination. You will be responsible for any applicable taxes or duties, based on the commercial invoice value for the model.
